Easter Chicks

These cute chicks go perfect with the Egg Nest.

You will need:
  • Yellow pom-poms (We used two large and one small)
  • Black seed beads
  • Tweezers
  • Glue
  • Orange felt

How to:
  1. Cut the orange felt into diamond shapes, fold in half and place glue on the crease. Glue onto pom-poms for beaks. We had some trouble getting the felt to stick to the pom-pom, but after many attempts, the glue hardened enough to make the next try stick.
  2. Holding seed beads with tweezers, dip into glue and place onto pom-poms for eyes.

This craft isn't exactly kid (i.e. 3 year old) friendly, but I've included it because the birds look so cute and look great in the nest. Young children can help to fold the diamonds in half to form the beaks and choose where to place the beaks and eyes.

Seed beads! I had no idea what they were, and after a good 20 minutes or so of hunting them down at the craft store, finally found them in the (duh) bead aisle. For those of you, like me, who don't know, they are those little teeny tiny beads that people use to make beaded jewelry. Who knew?
